How to Use the Square Root on a Texas Instrument Calculator

By Andrew Todd

Texas Instruments manufactures many types of scientific and graphing calculators, each designed to make a wide range of calculations, from simple addition and subtraction to creating graphs from complex formulas. One feature on all Texas Instrument calculators is the square root function, which automatically solves the square root of the number inputted to the calculator. The square root of a number is the number that is multiplied by itself to form the number. For example, "10 x 10 = 100," so the square root of 100 is 10.

Step 1

Press the "On" button to turn on the calculator.

Step 2

Press "2nd" followed by the "Square Root" button, which is the fifth button from the top in the far-left row of the calculator, diagonal of the "7" button.

Step 3

Enter the number of which you would like to determine the square root. For example, if you are attempting to determine the square root of 100, enter "100."

Step 4

Press the "Enter" button to display the square root of the inputted number.
